Zusammenfassung: The aim of this project was to develop a general concept to assess the laboratory experiments in the instrumental analysis laboratory, at the Institute of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (ICBC) at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), in terms of their sustainability and, where possible, to improve the sustainability rating of the laboratory experiments. Hence, the primary objective was to implement an empirical assessment methodology, including the “Sustainability Code” that was composed of four parts and a “Sustainability Load Index”. During the spring semester 2015, 105 different experimental projects were performed in the ICBC’s analytical chemistry practical course. These were carried out on 18 different instrumental workspaces, encompassing 12 different analytical methodologies. For the development of the first and second parts of the Sustainability Code, information concerning the chemical substances (in any state- solid, liquid or gas) used and the energy consumption of the apparatus was recorded. The third and fourth parts contain (approximate) information on the use of consumables and the sustainability of the method with reference to the apparatus used. The Load Index (LI) consists of an aggregation (summary) of the direct causality indicators ‘substances’ and ‘energy’ into a single figure. The experiments were classified on a 3-level Load Index Scale into ‘ideal’ analysis methods (LI> 20), ‘sustainable’ methods of analysis (LI 20-200), and analysis methods ‘with potential for optimization’ (LI <200). The assessment criteria described here, specifically designed for an analytical process in a university environment, may also serve as a useful guide for semi-quantitative assessment of both familiar and new methods in analytical chemistry practical courses and in laboratory practice. It may also be useful in general research laboratory environments.
